It never stopped them before from taking overweight people...they got them in shape in basic training.....I sense Mrs. BHO is behind this....just me.

I knew Mooshell was involved some way...the military has been doing fine for over 200 years without her interference

When I was drafted at the peak of the Vietnam draft, most guys did qualify. Right at the start, we waited three weeks, beore we starte Basic. During that time, we did daily exercize (running, etc.).

We didn't know it at the time, but the delay was probably getting a start on physical  fitness and discipline.

If we ever need lotsa bodies, the weight guidelines will get waived, and the pre-basic remedial time will get used.

Looking at the world as it really is, America has wasted thousands of lives for little or no progress fighting islamic terrorism.

Back during WWII FDR and Truman didn't say "Shinto is a religion of peace" like Bush did, or want to make buddies out of the muslim brotherhoood like Obama.

The individuals and the equipment of our military impress me, but not the leadership, which hasn't won a major war since WWII.

Reason: Too worried about killing the civilians that birthed and provided hidouts for the soldiers and terrorists.

The last time we intentionally bombed civilians in large numbers, we won the war.
"God must love the common man, he made so many of them.�  Abe Lincoln

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
